An elderly scientist Brian befriended on-line appears at the bureau asking for his help. His woes soon worsen when evidence points to him murdering a former colleague who made a personal fortune from their work. As Brian sifts though five inheriting charities and six disgruntled heirs for the true culprit, Sands burdens him further with the treasonous task of copying the FBI's secured files on NZT, a task he's strongly compelled not to ignore. Rebecca, while investigating a Chinese spy, learns of a newly discovered inheritance from her late father. Written by

Part of the story depends on Brian being up all night on NZT, but it's previously been established that he only gets one pill per day, which wears off in twelve hours.

When Mr. Morra gave you that shot to make you immune to the side effects of the pill, he told you it comes with an expiration date. You're gonna need a booster, shortly, or... your life's gonna take a nasty turn - brain damage, blackouts, psychosis. When you bring me those files, all of them, then and only then will you get your next shot.
